Visiting with our children, we loved the house. It's really well equipped for a great outdoor holiday. We loved walking in the hills around the house. The location is excellent for accessing Salzburg and the surrounding region and we were able to do lots of day trips. The booking process was smooth and everything was better than we had expected. A great place for a holiday in the hills. We will definitely be back!

There is plenty of space for the maximum number of guests and unlike many advertised places this lives up to the billing. The owners have done a great job in planning the layout and the furnishings. The best beds we have slept on during a five week holiday through Europe. Julie and Iain, the local managers, are wonderful and full of local information and very helpful in many other ways. This is not just a property for winter skiing but is available all year round and well worth a visit when the snows have gone or are yet to appear. Many great places to visit and Salzburg is a lovely place to spend the day. Ski lifts are open during the summer and hikers and cyclists will be in their element. There are restaurants and cafes within walking distance and even more if you are prepared to travel a bit further. We would recommend this apartment to anyone as being well above the norm.
